    I ended up having to do a restore and set up as new iPhone to get the update to show. Restore from backup didn't work.
    You had to restore the iPhone?!?

    Hopefully it's a software issue apple will iron out ASAP or maybe someone has a fix?
    As I need my pulse checking every 10 mins!
    That's the one of the main reasons I got this watch!

    I've tried updating a couple of times but it keeps getting hung up on "downloading to watch". I've tried: restart iPhone 6, restart watch, restart both, unpair watch and pair as new. Each time the watch is fully charged and sitting on the charger. The iPhone has bluetooth and wifi turned on and it is sitting on my night stand next to the watch. As far as I can tell the watch operates normally in all other aspects but I can't get it to update. I'm not sure of what else to try. Any suggestions?
    Mine is not working either. Restored three times still nothing but downloading to watch....

    So I went on the same run as prior to 1.0.1, and sadly my Workout app is off by as much as before. Prior to 1.0.1, my 5.97-mile run turned into a 5.84-mile run in Workout. After 1.0.1, I added a little .04 detour to make it 6.01 miles. Workout indicates 5.88 miles.

    but people have mentioned that having the iPhone vertical in your pocket instead of horizontal has helped correct their distance estimates
    I can't imagine the phone being vertical or horizontal affecting the accuracy of a run.

    Me neither, but I've seen this brought up multiple times, with a few people saying it has corrected their distance measurements…

    I've been running for 35 years and have done every major marathon and have ran races from 2 miles to 100k and was nationally raked at 50k #7. I just ordered my watch and one of the reasons was because of the fitness aspect. I'm not that much of a stickler for dead in accuracy. Been there done that. But I want it reasonably close. What do you use to carry you're phone?

    Generally I hold mine OR wear it in my pocket. Some of the shorts I have include loose pockets and some are tighter. To think if my phone, alters between vertical and horizontal affecting accuracy while running, doesn't seem plausible to me. Like I said, with my running past,obsession for dead on accuracy doesn't really matter to me.

    Since the update... the wrist detection is way more sensitive than before causing mine to turn on when Im not looking at it. The excercise ring is less sensitive. It flat froze up on me the other day when I went for a walk not registering at all that I was moving/exercising. I turned the watch off a couple of times and it is now registering but still not nearly as sensitive as before. The only other thing Ive noticed since the update is the battery on my 6 plus seems to be taking a bigger hit than before the update.

    The only negative difference I've noticed is wrist detection being more sensitive--as you mentioned. It appears not all people are having the same issues, which is even more frustrating.

    Steve Sabo got his with 1.01 already installed. Check his post out:

    His SGS-BSB shipped out last Wednesday (5/27) from China and he received it Friday (5/29). I believe if your watch shipped from China later than that, it should come updated.

    Probably because it didn't ship from China. Since mine shipped from China after Steve S, I still expect it to have 1.0.1.
